Fresh Air Fund- NEEDS your SUPPORT!

Hi Everyone!

I have already written about this WONDERFUL organization, the "FRESH AIR FUND" and now I'm writing because they need our help....

Today is the last day for supporter's donations for the kids to "double!" If you can please go to their website HERE to find out more info about their program, giving inner city kids in NY a chance to live with host families in the suburbs over the summer, I'm sure you be amazed at what they do! It's a life changing experience for these kids and we can help by being a host family or by donated to their program to help make things happen!

If anyone is interested in become a host family, please contact Fresh Air Fund directly! Here's the link: Fresh Air Fund Host Families wanted.

Thanks so much for your support and have a GREAT summer!!!

More about the Fresh Air Fund (FAF):

THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. In 2008, close to 5,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. 3,000 children also attended five Fresh Air camps on a 2,300-acre site in Fishkill, New York. The Fund’s year-round camping program serves an additional 2,000 young people each year.

Disneyland and Merwan Rim...

A WONDERFUL day at (Euro Disney) with Andrea and Ferbet... We couldn't have asked for a better day, weather wise and the big STRIKE certainly DIDN'T put a damper on our day!!! Can't wait to go back!

Me and Minne ears-- Sooo cute! LOVE the sparkly pink sequins! n It's TOTALLLLY me!!!

Ferbent, me, and Dweedle Dee (I had to check under his bow!) Looking cute!

The pots of hunny but no Pooh in sight!

Just by a fluke of chance... while in line for the carousel at Disney yesterday... I spotted my FAVVVVVVVVVV actor in musicals/singer-- Mr. Merwan Rim! I was sooo excited that I quickly went under the ropes to join him in line and speak to him ...

I was a little flustered and star struck.. but as I "excused myself for bothering him" (in French), I immediately broke out in English to tell him that I had seem him twice in Roi Soleil and three times in Mozart and just LOVED him!!! (No, I'm not shy at all). He was very kind and sweet and I told him that while we met once before Mozart (when the actors come out to sign autographs and take pics with fans) - the pic that I took with him then- was absolutely horrid (of me, not him) and he proposed to take another pic! YAYYYY!!! I told him I had already bought my tickets to see Mozart 3 more times in Nov! Great guy... and what a sweet family- wife and son along for a joyous day at Disneyland!

Thank you Merwan!! It was a pleasure to meet you and it really made my day- (uhmm, year!)

Le Marais avec Tatie Merle et Oncle Irv

The Marais... is one of my favourite places to go in Paris (partly because I love to go to "Le Loir dans le Théière." But, falafels are very popular in this part of town, too!
